I look forward to promoting stronger U.S.-Latvia ties and working with AmCham members to ensure Latvia is a trusted destination for international business.
John Tully, Chairman of the Board of MikroTik
On September 16, John L Carwile, U.S. Ambassador in Latvia met with members of all three Baltic AmChams in the luncheon held within the Pan-Baltic conference program. In his speech he was focusing on the topics of geopolitical security, the war in Ukraine as well as bilateral relations between Latvia and the U.S.
The Ambassador emphasized the United States’ unwavering commitment to Ukraine and highlighted the important role of energy security in the region. He said: "We will continue to work closely with the Baltics and our other NATO Allies and partners around the world to support the Ukrainian people, to bolster our NATO Allies, and to stand strong against Russia's cruel and premeditated aggression."
The luncheon took place within the 5th Pan-Baltic conference, a regional meeting embracing cooperation, communication, and exchange of best practices among AmCham members across the Baltic countries. The 2-day program featured sessions on defense and security, labor force availability, healthcare and cybersecurity as well as visits to MikroTik, Children’s Hospital Foundation and Children’s University Hospital.
Being part of AmCham is a great way to maintain business contacts with entrepreneurs and professionals.
